MEMBERS of the Central South Hampshire branch of the Federation of Small Businesses were treated to a breakfast seminar and tour of the Daily Echo offices and print plant in Redbridge, Southampton.

Editor-in-chief Ian Murray told the group the paper had changed in the way it delivered the news in many ways in recent years, with latest audited readership figures for print and online topping 250,000 unique readers each week, but that “content remained king.”

The visiting group was shown the first ever edition of the paper, dating back to August 1880, from the Daily Echo’s library before being given a tour of the site’s state of the art print plant and seeing editions roll off the presses.
